Closed System Treatment
Ty-Ion B20 is a liquid nitrite-borax corrosion inhibitor and dispersant for closed recirculating systems. It combines corrosion inhibitors, including a copper corrosion inhibitor, a unique copolymer dispersant, and a color indicator into a complete treatment for both hot and chilled water closed systems containing ferrous and nonferrous metal components. The color indicator facilitates leak detection and proper treatment residuals.
Ty-Ion B20 controls corrosion by producing a protective passivating film on all exposed metal surfaces through a synergistic combination of sodium nitrite and borax, plus organic inhibitors. In addition, its copolymer dispersant inhibits deposit formation through its dispersing capability.
The unique color indicator in Ty-Ion B20 is extremely useful in locating any existing leaks in closed systems, to quickly determine if the systems are properly treated and also to determine if the pH has dropped in the system because of bacterial infestation.

This product must be used in accordance to the following directions by HVACR professionals only.
For best results, it is recommended that both chilled water systems and hot water heating systems be charged with one gallon of Ty-Ion B20 per 100 gallons of system water, or 1000 ppm (mg/L) as nitrite. Additional product should be considered for closed hot water systems as they can be more prone to corrosive attack. As much as 1 gallon per 75 gallons water of Ty-Ion B20 should be considered, particularly where the temperature exceeds 185°F. Periodically, at least once per month, the treatment residual should be checked; the residual should always be at least 1000 ppm (mg/L) as nitrite (NaNO2), and up to 1500 ppm (mg/L) in hot water systems where more B20 is required.
